SPOILERS FOR WRESTLEMANIA XXX BELOW:

In case you hadn’t heard already, 21 years of history was washed away over the weekend as Brock Lesnar pinned The Undertaker 1-2-3 in the center of the ring at Wrestlemania XXX. However, the legendary undefeated streak wasn’t the only record that was broken in New Orleans.

The Super Dome is a massive stadium that has in the past played host to the three-day Essence Festival in 2013 featuring Beyoncé. Well, WWE has risen to the top and managed to shatter the Super Dome’s previous attendance record (held by the Essence Festival) by managing to get 75,167 people through the door and into the arena. That was 75,167 attendees sitting in stunned silence when the Undertaker was pinned, and 75,167 chanting “YES, YES, YES!” as Daniel Bryan took his place as the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion.

    Pretty upset the streak ended. Was hoping it would be one of those things that would last. Against Brock Lesner aswell,didnt want him to end it. Sadder news still. The Ultimate Warrior has passed away. R.I.P Champ 🙁

    • Yes the streak wasn’t meant to happen but unfortunately take did have a concussion for nearly 3/4 of that match and was being carried by Lesner most of the time, and the sad part was the final F5 totally knocked him out when he was meant to kick out and deliver one final tomb stone to end the match and keep the streak alive.

      Also yes most saddening to hear that The Ultimate Warrior passed away quite a shock and he will be missed especially now that he was a new Ambassador for the WWE.
